Memoirs: Did Ye Hear Mammy Died?, Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive #BookReview #Audiboook #Memoir

I am trying to read more non-fiction this year, so both of these books not only fit the bill, but also sounded extremely interesting. Did Ye Hear Mammy Died? is all about being raised in a family of 11 children, after the death of their mother. Maid is the story of a single mother and trying to make a living for her and her young daughter. Both were very interesting and engaging.

Three Thriller Reviews: Two Nights in Lisbon, Please Join Us, The Other Girlfriend #BookReview #2022AudiobookChallenge #Audiobook

Over the last few weeks, I have mixed up my reading, with a few thrillers being mixed in. These three were very different from each other with revenge playing a part in two of the stories. I listened to, or did a read/listen with all of them. The narration varied, but all were enjoyable. Scroll down for my reviews.

YA Mini-Reviews: The Drowned Woods, Enola Holmes and the Elegant Escapade #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge

Over the last few weeks, I did read/listens for a couple of YA books that I very much enjoyed. The Drowned Woods is a dark fairytale/fantasy/folklore story from Wales and Enola Holmes and the Elegant Escapade is a mystery/adventure story. I recommend them both.

3 Mini-Reviews of Crime Thrillers: Long Gone by Joanna Schaffhausen, Reckoning by Catherine Coulter, Shutter by Ramona Emerson #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge @HarperAudio

These three crime thrillers were all enjoyable, but very different from one another. You have one dealing with a police detective (Long Gone), another that features the FBI (Reckoning) and the final book is about a forensic photographer (Shutter). The first two are from series I enjoy and the last a debut by the author, and one I hope will become a series. Read on for my reviews.

Scroll down for my thoughts, a Q&A with Sarah Morgan and an excerpt from the book.

Historical Mysteries/Crime: The Red Palace, A Rip Through Time #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge

It’s now secret that I enjoy a good mystery and these two, The Red Palace and A Rip Through Time definitely fit that bill. These are historical mysteries, one set in Korea in 1758 and the other in Scotland in 1869. Although very different from one another, they were both excellent stories that I recommend.

Mini-Reviews: Lizzie Blake’s Best Mistake, The Beach Escape #BookReview #Audiobook #Romance

Reading a variety of genres, I love light and easy romance to fit in between thrillers and historical fiction. Both of these romances were enjoyable reads that made me smile. One, The Beach Escape, is sweet and clean, the other, Lizzie Blake’s Mistake, is a bit racy but with a great message. Read on for my thoughts.
